Rachel Zoe: Empire builder
In just one decade, she's gone from no-name stylist to red carpet tastemaker -- earning $6,000 a day, with clients including Cameron Diaz, Eva Mendes and Demi Moore -- to full-fledged celebritydom, with a Bravo reality show and a QVC line. Now, she's launching a fashion collection with prices that range from $250 to $700 and a style that says "1970s."
"I wanted androgyny and the powerful woman look," Zoe says. "It’s very Jane Birkin-y and Anjelica Huston-y and Bianca Jagger-y, with a splash of sequins, a little Liza Minelli, thrown in." Booth Moore reports on all that is new in Zoe's life (and that includes a rather well-dressed baby boy named Skyler) -- plus an update on other celebrity stylists who have parlayed their status into clothing and accessories brands.
